Disney recently announced a new project meant to inspire imagination and create learning opportunities with students.
The Imagination Campus will be opening in both Florida and California in January 2022, with workshops for the Arts and Humanities, Science and Technology, and Leadership and Innovation. Disney World is planning to invite some special guests to stay for a Disney vacation and check out the new campus. Here’s how you can enter to be one of those guests!
Disney is going to invite 50 educators (including teachers, music directors, and administrators) that they believe are “inspiring imagination in their classrooms” to a new teacher event at the Imagination Campus.
These teachers will attend the Disney Imagination Campus 50 Teachers Celebration at Disney World in January 2022, which includes an “inspiration session” with Disney leaders to teach new ideas that the teachers can put to use in their classrooms. They’ll also get to see the new workshops on the Campus and take part in more of the Disney World 50th Anniversary celebrations.
If you’re an imaginative teacher who wants to go to Disney World for this event, you can apply now through October 31, 2021. You’ll need to follow these steps:
- Go to https://disney50teacherscontest.com
- Create an account
- Write and submit a short essay answering this prompt: Describe an example where you’ve encouraged your students to use their imaginations to creatively solve problems, including your own creativity in presenting curriculum in a new and inspiring way
Y0u can enter now, and 50 winners will be chosen. These winners will receive a 4-day, 3-night stay at Disney World, where they’ll get to attend the Imagination Campus Teachers Celebration as well as visit the parks! If you’re one of the winners, you’ll hear back on January 10, 2022.
Keep following DFB for more updates on events happening in Disney World!
